Colin Edwards II, Under the Radar

One of the cool things I did this past Christmas in California was get on the horn and call up some people. Here I am at Desmoto Sport on 9th with my ever present Axio Hardpack making some calls. This shop is full of vintage, full-resto's, and racebike carcasses everywhere - it's my kind of place. If you're in SF, check it out.

I was lucky enough to get in touch with Colin Edwards II and we set up a short, impromtu phone interview for MotoGPod, the internet radio show about motorcycle roadracing.

Here's a clip of from the full podcast which also features some great stuff from Dave Emmett, also known as Kropotkin, and an interview with the world class photographer, Andrew Wheeler!

Also, here's a special shout out to Greg G., who mailed me this cool shirt he made.

Greg G. is also known as Graystoke on a ton of internet forums, and he's a nice guy so say hello if you see him on his red VFR with #45 stickers. I hear he's trying to switch to an Aprilia Futura in the near future. Good luck with the Italian bike, Greg!

And last but not least, the strange suit drying machine we spoke about on the podcast!

This makes more than 2000 photos that I've put out on

Edit - I've had a little time to look through some photos, so here are a couple from Desmoto Sport. Enjoy!

Here we have the perfect example of the old and the new.

Name that bike!

Training, training. This young lady, Kerri, is also the editor of SF Urban Moto Magazine. Cool, huh?

The "junkyard" starts here:

Lots of neat little things to look at, if you dig a little.

Totally Classic, and I wish I had a street tracker of one of these . . . .

My favorite bike there? Still undergoing a slight revision. . . .

See you guys at the races!


Just recently found this site & I thouroughly enjoy what I read.
Thanks for sharing your life with us Liam - please continue to live the dream!
Sincere best wishes!
